This IoT device notifies you before an Earth-obliterating supernova

Posted by in categories: cosmology, internet

Would you like a warning before the world ends?

Well, it’s now possible. Extraluminal is an Internet of Things (IoT) device that will notify you an hour before the Earth is about to be destroyed by a supernova.

A supernova refers to “the cataclysmic explosion of a massive star at the end of its life. It can emit more energy in a few seconds than our sun will radiate in its lifetime of billions of years.”

Twin physically unclonable functions (PUFs) based on carbon nanotube arrays to enhance the security of communications

Posted by in categories: computing, encryption, internet, nanotechnology, security

As the amount of data stored in devices and shared over the internet continuously increases, computer scientists worldwide are trying to devise new approaches to secure communications and protect sensitive information. Some of the most well-established and valuable approaches are cryptographic techniques, which essentially encrypt (i.e., transform) data and texts exchanged between two or more parties, so that only senders and receivers can view it in its original form.

Physical unclonable functions (PUFs), devices that exploit “random imperfections” unavoidably introduced during the manufacturing of devices to give physical entities unique “fingerprints” (i.e., trust anchors). In recent years, these devices have proved to be particularly valuable for creating , which are instantly erased as soon as they are used.

Researchers at Peking University and Jihua Laboratory have recently introduced a new system to generate cryptographic primitives, consisting of two identical PUFs based on aligned carbon nanotube (CNT) arrays. This system, introduced in a paper published in Nature Electronics, could help to secure communications more reliably, overcoming some of the vulnerabilities of previously proposed PUF devices.

Hackers can turn computer cables into antenna to steal sensitive data

Posted by in categories: computing, internet

Computers are sometimes kept disconnected from the internet, or “air gapped”, to avoid remote hackers gaining access to steal data, but now there is a way to use a hard drive cable to transmit information via radio waves.

European satellite firms eye tie-up to create ‘global champion’

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, internet, satellites

French satellite operator Eutelsat said on Monday it was in talks with British counterpart OneWeb for a tie-up to create a “global champion” in broadband internet, rivaling US services like Elon Musk’s Starlink.

Satellite broadband promises to bring coverage to the most remote areas of the planet by doing away with the need for antennas and other infrastructure.

It will also supply internet on commercial aircraft and to products like connected cars.

Will GPT-3 Win Oscar When it Starts Writing Movie Scripts Big Time?

Posted by in categories: entertainment, internet, media & arts, robotics/AI

Using GPT-3, Calamity AI developed a short film script called Date Night. GPT-3 is the third generation Generative Pre-trained Transformer, is a neural network ML model trained using internet data to generate any type of text. GPT-3 has been used to create articles, poetry, stories, news reports, and dialogue using just a small amount of input text that can be used to produce large amounts of quality content. Developed by OpenAI, it requires a small amount of input text to generate large volumes of relevant and sophisticated machine-generated text.

Enter Calamity AI, a pair of film students in California collaborating with an AI to write original short films and produce for YouTube. It aims to showcase the results of AI and humans working in tandem. The limitations of artificial intelligence restrict it from doing every element of the filmmaking process.

France’s Eutelsat close to deal for UK satellite operator OneWeb —sources

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, internet, satellites

LONDON/PARIS, July 24 (Reuters) — French satellite company Eutelsat (ETL.PA) is poised to buy British rival OneWeb in a deal that could be announced as early as Monday, two sources close to the negotiations said on Sunday.

OneWeb was valued at $3.4 billion in its most recent funding round, one of the sources said. Eutelsat already has a 23% stake in OneWeb and is its second-biggest shareholder.

The merger of the two companies would strengthen their position in the race to build a constellation of low-orbit satellites, challenging the likes of Elon Musk-owned SpaceX’s Starlink and Inc’s (AMZN.O) Project Kuiper.
